Acro Yoga Workshop

2:00 - 4:00pm
$55.00 + GST
with Amethyst Ward
Acroyoga is a fun and unique style of yoga that requires two or more people working together to create beautiful poses and flows. Working with a partner, or in groups cultivates trust, playfulness and connection.
In this 2 hour workshop we will explore a variety of acroyoga poses, transitions (from one pose to another), partner warms-ups and some fun group poses! You will learn how to be a solid base and a steady flyer by using proper technique and alignment. We will practise safely and, through therapeutic techniques, take care of ourselves and our partners through therapeutic techniques. Acroyoga is a very fun, challenging and humbling experience that helps you practice trust, patience and communication in a playful environment. Feel free to sign up with a partner or as an individual!
About Amethyst Ward
Amethyst began her yoga journey back in 2009 when she was invited to her first yoga class by a friend. She was 19 and unsure of what was next for her in life. The class was a jam-packed hot flow. She had no idea what she was doing, but loved every minute of it. She loved the group energy, the challenge of the poses and the relaxing savasana at the end. She left that class feeling amazing, the best she had ever felt, body, mind and soul. Just months later she was on her way to complete her 500 hour YTT at the Sivananda Ashram in Kerala, India.
Since then she has taught thousands of classes, while continuing to deepen her own practice through special trainings, workshops and attending classes regularly. She has always believed in being a student first and a teacher second. Amethyst can teach a wide variety of class styles but her favourite are yoga flows and anything else she can make challenging and get creative with. She is also a certified Acroyoga teacher and loves sharing this fun and unique practice with everyone!
Though she loves the physical challenge and benefits of yoga, it is so much more than that to her. It has been such an important part of her life for the last 13 years. Her mat is her safe place, her happy place, and a place where she can escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life for a little while. She loves the never ending personal growth that comes along with a yoga journey. It is a practice she feels so lucky to have found and she is honoured to get to share it with you.
